Premier Trailer Leasing has acquired certain assets of Trailer Fleet International, a provider of trailer rental and leasing services on the west coast, with nearly 3,000 trailers and locations in Los Angeles, Rancho Cucamonga, Portland and Seattle.
With the acquisition, Premier Trailer Leasing now has more than 25,000 trailers and 25 locations from coast to coast.
“This acquisition is an outstanding fit for our company, enabling Premier to be a national player in the trailer rental and leasing industry,” says Jim Aubuchon, Premier’s President and CEO. “We can provide enterprise solutions for our customers with national needs while giving access to new equipment and technology to Trailer Fleet’s existing customer base.”
In the past three years, Premier says it has grown from 11,000 trailers to more than 25,000 and has invested $200 million to acquire a broad spectrum of trailers including specialized flatbeds, refrigerated vans and dry vans of all types.
